POWERSEAT – REVOLUTIONARY DEVICE FOR WORKING AT HEIGHT
Ascend quickly, stay in position longer, and work in comfort. Harken’s range of gasoline, electric and compact PowerSeats provide a safer, more efficient way of working at height. The PowerSeat is a low-friction, safety-enhancing solution that reduces the risk of operator injury when working in diverse areas such as mountain rescue, structural maintenance, telecommunication installations, portable winching, and overhead line maintenance. The brake system offers complete security against free fall. It operates using a dead man’s switch to control ascent speed with descent control carried out manually, ensuring you can always be lowered.
